NITA LAKE LODGE WHISTLER CREEKSIDE
Perched elegantly on a pristine glacier fed lake, Nita Lake Lodge is just a five-minute shuttle (complimentary) ride from the heart of Whistler Village. The massive wood lodge that greets you as you arrive at the property is located a mere 500 meters from the base of Whistler Mountain in the Creekside community. It is quiet, it is thankfully removed from the business of Whistler Village and it is a divine place to relax, recharge and reconnect.
Our lakefront suite was spacious and charming with a fireplace wall that separated the living and sleeping areas. Expansive windows and a balcony overlooking Nita Lake quickly became a favorite spot to convene for drinks and conversation; early morning with coffee and late evening with a great bottle of local wine. The spa bathroom featured a massive soaker tub and a 2-person stone tiled glass shower. I was also impressed that the toiletries provided were L’occitane, one of my favorite brands.
Dining at Nita Lake Lodge was certainly a treat! Lunch at Fix Café was homemade heaven, with delicious breads and pastries, expertly brewed coffee and one of the best fruit smoothies I have ever had. Dinner at Aura Restaurant was a multi-course sensation, and we reveled in every mouthful.
This is also the type of property that you just want to spend time in the public spaces. Cure Lounge, was recently refurbished with oversize lodge furnishings and it is fabulous. I recommend sampling from their signature cocktail menu. I recommend trying the Canadian Whiskey Flight and the Don Draper Sour Craft cocktail.
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge was just what I needed! The relaxation lounge was filled with natural light and comfortable chaises. The rooftop hot tub and eucalyptus steam room were divine, and the treatments were professional and much needed.
Nestled in the snowy mountains, surrounded by B.C.’S naturally wild awesomeness and created to elevate your senses and expectations of what a great destination resort should be, Nita Lake Lodge is the perfect place to vacation in Whistler. It absolutely lives up to its reputation of being exceptional, intimate, authentic.
